There’s trouble in River City. “Trouble with a capital T…” as Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” marches onto the stage of Green River College, courtesy of Heavier Than Air Family Theatre Company and community actors who have weathered winter storms to revive the Tony Award winning Broadway musical.

“The Music Man” opens at 7 p.m. Friday, March 29 in the Performing Arts Building on the main campus of the college, 12401 SE 320th St., Auburn, and runs through Saturday, April 6.

Performances are at 7 p.m. March 29, 30, April 5 and 6, with a 2 o’clock matinee on Saturdays, March 30 and April 6.

Mother Nature marched through with a little trouble herself this season, resulting in multiple campus snow closures. Cast members worked hard to overcome missed rehearsals and are ready to light up the playhouse with the escapades of a traveling con artist in a quaint but naïve Iowa town set in 1912.

There’s something for every generation in this musical comedy that’s been entertaining audiences since 1957. The plot twists and turns with amusement, suspicion, warmth and romance, while featuring show stopping band music, fast-paced song and dance numbers, a barbershop quartet, sweet love songs, and a hilarious chorus of gossiping pick-a-little ladies.

For tickets and information call 253-833-9111, extension 2400, Monday-Friday, or visit heavierthanair.com.
